WhY Work with CAMCAT?

In times when various factors become more and more expensive and marketing budgets are either shrinking or basically non-existent, clients seem to require all-in-one solutions, which is what a CAMCAT "one-man-show" is able to provide: a single person setting up cameras, lights and sound and be in full control over a solid outcome, which makes planning fast, resulting in massive cost-efficiency for the client, without risking compromises in terms of an expensively looking result. In short: HQ look at low-cost.

That's only one of a couple more reasons why you wanna work with CAMCAT...  ;-)  

"THE SOUTH BANK" is a short film by CAMCAT, nominated by 
several film festivals around Europe (Multiple finalist's status in 2023)

THE SOUTH BANK

After meeting his client and being assigned a new job, the main character has to search an apartment that is being used as an interim storage of unknown matter and value. On his way through the apartment, the robber takes his time to examine a couple off-key objects and finds a way to increase his pay. Everything is going according to plan until the owner of the apartment returns home, which causes the robber's plans to take an unexpected turn.

In 2023 "THE SOUTH BANK" has been officially selected by six film festivals around Europe, three of which chose the film to participate in the finals. 

Just a few weeks after Tim Vieira announced his Presidential candidate status for the 2026 elections, we were equally lucky and honoured to film one of the very first interviews with him. We wish Tim a successful campaign and may he be able to put his vision for Portugal into practice! :-)

Filmmaker Christopher Michael Heisler, the founder of CAMCAT - Portugal, is also the founder of the ACC - Lisbon (Active Cinematographers Club), with the help of which actors, cinematographers, editors, sound designers and other cinema enthusiasts can explore, discuss, plan, exchange and just be social and have fun while practicing cinema for free.

Here's one of the examples showing what we're capable of shooting and finalizing within two days of work:
